During our devotions this morning, my kids asked me what in the world we were going to do for the next couple weeks. This is humorous because today is just like any other day for our homeschool family. But apparently just the thought that we aren’t going to be going to church this week, or the store, or the other activities we would usually attend, was enough to send them into pre-boredom panic.
Thankfully, my family already has a lot of experience with staying occupied during times of waiting. One of the things we often do is play “Activity Bingo” – for prizes! It encourages them to stay occupied, gives them suggestions on how to occupy their time, and then rewards them for doing so. Then it occurred to me there might be other families that could benefit from what I’ve created.
Here’s how it works… Each child receives a bingo card and chooses which activities he or she would like to accomplish. Children can get a BINGO by accomplishing any 5 activities in a row, either vertically or horizontally. Each BINGO earns a reward coupon of their choice. I usually give a bonus reward coupon for completing the entire card. That’s it! Simply print the cards and the coupons, cut them out, and have fun! (I like to print on cardstock, but whatever you have is fine.)
I am including an Elementary Age BINGO card as well as a Teen version and reward cards. They are in both PDF and Word format so you can customize if you like!
Have fun! And if you have any questions or need any tech help, don’t hesitate to contact us. GraceWorks Global is here for you!
